Care lagrime mie,
messi dolenti di mie pene rie,
poiché voi non potete
far molle, ohime! quel core
che non haver pietà del mio dolore,
almen per cortesia
ammorzate l’accesa fiamma mia,
o pur crescete tanto
ch’io mi sommerga nel mio stesso pianto.

English.png English translation

Dear tears of mine,
sorrowful envoys of my cruel pains,
since you cannot—alas!—
soften that heart
which has no pity for my grief,
at least, out of courtesy,
snuff out my burning flame,
or else flow so intensely
that I drown myself in my own tears.

Translation by Campelli
